What a week! It was quite a week at StudentLife camp! Our speaker, JR Vassar, did an exceptional job as did Spur58, our worship leaders. The drama group All Things to All People, were absolutely unbelievable! It was a wonderful way to spend the week nevertheless, we're glad to be home. We've only been up a short while and Julie doesn't feel quite well, so today is a slow and quiet day at our house. I'm doing a little catching up on reading. One thing I've read alot about is Chris Hitchin's book How Religion Poisons Everything. Perhaps you've seen it too. If you haven't, the title tells you everything you need to know about the book. It's noteworthy only because of it's popularity (It's in the top ten of the NY Times bestsellers list). Here's my issue with it. He only deals with religion as if its a homogenous unit, all standing on equal footing. Furthermore, nowhere in the work does he address Christianity as a relationship with Jesus Christ. I would wholeheartedly disagree with that!
